Adult Language Education and Migration : Challenging agendas in policy and practice
Adult Language Education and Migration provides a lively and critical introduction to policy and practice in language migrant education in a range of countries around the world. Migration has become a contentious issue with the numbers and needs of migrants often outpacing the development of policy and infrastructure. Policies that have been developed have been controversial and hotly contested such as the imposition of language tests for migrants and successive cuts to the funding of language classes for adults.
